Carbex® T6000


Carbex® T6000

Carbex® T6000 staple fibers are preoxidized organic fibers that are inherently fire resistant, exhibit excellent chemical resistance and are electrically non-conductive. These fibers do not drip or melt and are easily processed as a blend with other FR fibers on conventional textile equipment into knitted, woven or nonwoven fabrics. Carbex®T6000 is widely used for friction materials (e.g. break pads) protective apparel, welding blankets and automotive accessories. In most cases Carbex®T6000 is processed as a blend with either Technora®, Conex®or Aramet®. Listed below are typical properties of this fiber:
